Founded by Nevada Humanities in Reno in 1992, Nevada Humanities Festival and Chautauqua is one of the longest running Chautauqua festivals in the nation.

Educational and entertaining, Chautauqua programs provide dramatic insights into the people and events that have shaped the nation and serve as a historical lens for viewing contemporary issues.
